Did you know that I started my OWN personal dip pen calligraphy practice and journey with a workshop JUST like this one that I now teach? It was taught in the home of a dear fellow Louisville gal, and that was the launching pad for what is now my own business centered around dip pen calligraphy: Letter and Knot Co!
Dip pen calligraphy is one of the greatest gifts I have ever found, and I hope to share my passion for it with you in this workshop! This intimate workshop will be hosted in my home (In the Seneca park area of Louisville, KY!) where we will all sit together at the 6 foot farm table my dad hand crafted for my husband and I! There will be light refreshments, but the bulk of my time with you will be spent sharing everything I know about the art of dip pen calligraphy.
Some of the HARDEST things to learn when starting as a dip calligrapher is proper pressure, proper form, how to hold your dip pen, the angle of the nib, and proper technique. I will be right there to walk alongside of you to adjust your form, how you hold your dip pen, correcting your pressure as you calligraph, and so much more.
Who is this workshop for?
This is a beginners workshop to dip pen calligraphy! Most of the students who have taken my workshop have known absolutely nothing about dip pen calligraphy, and have never picked up a dip pen, OR they have been brush calligraphers who are looking to take their calligraphy practice to the next level. I am here to meet you right where you are at on your journey.
